For those who commented on the Kuraw calligraphy:

Thanks for all the nice comments. Much of the aesthetics in that
calligraphy come from seeing brushwork done for Chinese and Japanese
calligraphy. The major influence though was Japanese brush work that i've
seen on signs and things in pictures of Japan. The flourishes are very
much like those. I do wonder though how someone who is a "master" at
Chinese or Japanese calligraphy would handle the script.

Communication is not just words, communication is...architecture
because of course it is quite obvious that  the house that would be built
without that desire, that desire to communicate, would not look as your
house does today.
